for 2012. The new list is here:We're still thrifting for you in 2012!
What does this mean for this 2011 list?

1. Well first of all, your requests from this list are not carrying over to the new list. I know this may upset some of you and I apologize. There was just no easy way to do it. It was discussed in the discussion thread and fifisdead decided it was best to start the 2012 list off fresh and I agreed. If you want to continue requesting the same game I would strongly encourage you to go to the new list and see if you can still make the request. On the upside, there may be a game you couldn't request on this list but is now available on the new list. So hurry over and make your request. Sorry I didn't post this earlier but I didn't expect the new list to go up as quickly as it did.

2. As for this list. I will keep it open through the end of Jan. This is to allow extra time for those still working out the fulfillment of games. You can still add games to the list but I would strongly encourage you make any new requests on the new lists. This list will officially close at the end of the month and all requests will be considered expired. Again, I encourage you to go to the new list and make your new requests there.

The Back Story
Hi. My name is Kent and I am addicted to thrifting. I've been treasure hunting at thrift stores since the day I got my drivers lisence. I'm always looking for clothes, books, records, video games, and of course boardgames. Back in 2005 I discovered BGG. One of the first things that grabbed my attention was the weekly thrift lists. I had been thrifting games long before this but now I had a place to show off my finds to people who might actually care. I've had a lot of fun over the past 5 years posting the games I found and of course seeing all the great stuff other thrifters were finding. But now I've got a problem. I'm reaching a point where I feel there is not a lot more left for me to find. I've nearly ran out of grails. Last year I had some great finds but most either ended up traded or sold. I find that it's becoming harder and harder to find games that I want to keep and play. Added to this is the fact that my collection has just gotten too big and there is no more space. I don't want to quit thrifting though. I enjoy it too much. So I've decided to do something different this year. This year I will thrift for YOU.

The Point
So the purpose of this geeklist is to provide a place for you to ask me to find a game for you. I will keep a list of the games to take with me on my thrift adventures. If I find the game you requested for less than $5, it's yours. It's that simple. Well sort of, there are a few rules. Please read all of the following before participating.

The Rules

1. Anyone with a BGG, RPGG, or VGG account is eligible to ask for a game.

2. To ask me to look for a game, just add the game as an item to this geeklist. You can only ask for one game at a time. If I find the game you asked for, after you recieve it you can then ask for another.
* I will allow you to change your request to a different game as long as the new game has not already been requested and you inform me so I can take your original game off the list.

3. You cannot ask for a game that I am currently looking for, for someone else. This will be first come first serve based on when the item was added to the geeklist. To see the latest list of games requested, click the link at the bottom of the header.

4. You are not required to write anything in your item, but if you want to tell why you want the game it will be appreciated. Also, you might want to tell me if you would be fine with an incomplete or terrible condition copy of the game.

5. The game is free. I'm not going to charge you for it's value or even what I payed for it. Seriously. If I find Magic Realm, and you asked me to find it for you, it's yours no charge. I do require that you reimburse the actuall shipping cost rounded down to the nearest dollar. If I got really lucky this year and found a ton of games for people, I could go broke real quick just from the shipping. The games will be shipped via USPS but I'll let you select the method (priority, ground etc.). Please be aware that for International shipping, USPS Priority may be the only option.

6. There are a few games that I will keep if I find them. five actually, and I've listed them as the first five items on this geeklist below. These are off limits until I find them. Other than that, you can ask for any boardgame, videogame, or RPG that you like. If you ask for War of the Ring Collectors edition, You'll probably will be dissapointed. But... I would have said the same thing about Up Front and I found that last year.

Azhanti High Lightning
John Carter: Warlord of Mars
Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit
Tumblin-Dice
Anything Heroscape Since I've already recieved more than one offer to send me Heroscape stuff, I've decided to scratch it from my list. Request away but maybe try to ask for specific Heroscape items as one user already has.


*I will add this caveat. My intent is not to make you money or find trade fodder for you. Please only ask for games that you either want to play or want to add to your collection permanently. Don't ask for Cashflow 101 unless you really want to play it. It will make me sad to send you a valuable game I found only to see you turn around and sell it in the marketplace or use it to trade up in a math trade.

7. Please do not post trade offers or offers to sell the games on this list. That is not intended to be a trade list or auction. If you want to step in and provide a game you have found at a thriftstore then you must adhere to rules above. Especially relating to rule 5. Anyone posting a game to this list should only be expected to cover the shipping cost. If you want to geekmail someone a trade offer or sell offer because you saw the item they listed here, no problem. Just don't make your offer anywhere on this list.

8. NEW RULE Benning now, it is required that when your request is fulfilled or you are at least confident that it is being fulfilled, that you update the geeklist item with the word FULFILLED. Preferably in bold and larger print. Once this is done, it will allow two things:
1. You may request another game that is not currently being requested.

2. Someone else can request the game that you previously requested (As per rule 3 above).

These two things should not happen until the item has been updated as described above.

I also ask that you notify me via gm when you update your item so I can remove it from the request list in the discussion thread. It's the list I take with me to the thrift stores so I would like to keep it as up to date as possible.


9. I reserve the right to add or change any rule if it becomes necessary.

Sorry I know this header is long. Feel free to take a chance on my thrifting luck. I'm not nearly as good as some of the thrifters on this site but I think I can hold up my own.

ANNOUNCEMENT 1/18/11> Please Read

I added a new rule with specific instructions on how to update your item once your request has been fulfilled. If those few who have already had their fulfilled could edit thier post according to rule 8 that would be great. But since the rule was not in place at the time, this is not required.

Hopefully this will be the last change/addition I will need to make to the rules. In case something else comes up though, I will first post about the change in the discussion thread so you guys can offer your input and advice. Here is the link to the thread if you would like to subscribe:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/6109666#6109666.

1.31.11 It was pointed out on the discussion thread that it would be very helpful if updates were posted to the geeklist item once the game has been found/offered (gm sent, on the way, etc.). This will help those who are creating a list of games to look for by printing out this geeklist. With the updates, they will be able to see if a game has already been found so they don't buy it. This is not a requirement but it would be very helpful to those who want to help look but don't want to spend money on a game that has already been offered. Thanks!

Thats all for the moment. Have fun and happy thrifting everyone!

Please let me know if I make a mistake on this list and I will fix it.

Attention!,
My attempts at keeping up a current list of all games requested so far can be found here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/6109666#6109666
edit 3/16/11: And I have been doing a poor job of keeping it up to date. Sorry about that. The good news is that parkrrrr has given us a link to an always up to date list of games with links back to this geeklist. Here is the link - http://parkrrrr.com/bgg/foryou.cgi

Also here is some info on the link from Ron:
Quote:
Games are sorted first in alphabetical order, then in order by the geeklist entry ID (which I believe is assigned sequentially, so older entries will appear in the list first.)

By default, fulfilled entries - which is to say, any entry that contains the word "fulfilled" anywhere in it, bolded or not - is dropped from the list. There's a link at the top to add those or remove them, as appropriate. If you include them, I include a bonus: a count of the number of fulfilled requests so far. As of this writing, that count is a whopping 126!

There is a tiny bug of note: two games with the same name will sort in strict geeklist ID order, even if they're different games. Dune and Dune are an example of this.

Thanks Ron!!

I'm simply in love with this community.

I've had my eye on this game for a while. Tough to find for a good price.

Good luck to all thrifters. Hope you're having more luck than I in the Minnesota thrifting scene.

I got a bunch of great stuff from my secret santa this year,. Just like I told him/her, the number 1 game that I've searched for (and haven't found) is Epic Duels.

A few years ago, my brother lived with me, and we would play it all the time. He recently bought a new house, and I think it would be the perfect gift for him.

Played this like crazy when we had a Star Wars RPG bout during the 80's. Now it's lost in time and space and I long to see it again. Would be an awesome find. What are my chances?

I can put the game back in the list, right?

Several years ago, when I played WEG Star Wars, a friend had this game, but we never played it!

I have always wanted to play space fights in this universe, and after reading the rules, I think this game is quite fun and easy compared to other space simulation games (boardgames or minis).

Now, the question is.. where to find it??

Edit: erased a particular word...

I still have hopes of finding this someday. Every once in a while this will pop up in the thrift lists so I know it's possible.

EDIT:
Just to clarify. This Item was added solely for the purpose of letting everyone know that if I find this game, I'm going to keep it. I just didn't want people to waste their request on something I was going to keep.

Oh what I wouldn't give to get my hands on a copy of this game! If you were to get me a copy of this game... I would be BLOWN AWAY! It would restore my faith in human nature... It would make me want to be a better man. It would make the sun shine a little better... it would make the grass a little greener and I would be in your debt for all eternity.

I really would love to get this game!

EDIT: D'oh! I just read that this is understandly so "Grail #1." I would like to keep my request on the list in the admittedly small hopes that you one day find TWO copies of this game or so that I can be first on the list for the next copy after you find a copy for yourself. THAT's how much I want this game! I will also be scouring the thrift stores in my area of Canada in hopes of finding this grail as well. If I find a copy, I will have to keep it for me but on this day, I do promise that if I find TWO copies - you get the 2nd one. Good luck and good hunting!

This is a great service you are providing!

FURTHER EDIT: I finally have a copy of this game of own (thanks to the overwhelming generosity of a very good friend) so I will withdraw my name for "a 2nd copy" of this game. Good luck to everyone else trying to get a copy of this excellent game.

I decided I would delete this game and try for one that is not out of print (TI3) but someone beat me to it, so here it is again .

I know that this is out of print but it is a game I have been looking for a long time. Thank you for any help.

I decided to change mine from Galaxay Trucker to something that’s not quite as impossible to thrift. I hope that’s okay! I have some friends who are into Settlers. I could take it or leave it, but the space theme of Starfarers appeals to me so I’m hoping it would make a good middle ground.

Hey Kent,
Thanks for helping a total newbie in on this!! What an amazing offer and the spirit of camaraderie on this site is great! So much beyond just the "buying and selling" on ebay, etc...

I'm getting this for my 10 year old son who loves Settlers (ok, I admit I do too!!) I bought it for Christmas and most all of my six kids like it. (Ok, the 3 year old has to watch...)
Anyway, this game was recommended to me (thanks Ed!) and it's perfect as my son is always asking me to play chess--which I'm not really into.
BOTH my boys love Star Wars at this point, so a two person game would be great, as I spend 1:1 time... OR they could play with each other when the girls aren't in the mood..

(Also, the Starfarers game and figurines were already taken!)

Thanks again!!!
Also, taking recommendations for other games that are not so "cut throat" like Risk and Monopoly. My kids HATE to get "eliminated" from the game, and I think that's why Catan is so awesome.
Self Fulfilled
Got this on a BGG auction... Guess I couldn't wait for Christmas.... ha!

The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. - GKC

This one is for my wife. Stay Alive is one of her childhood games that I've not been able to find while thrifting. Looks like it was found at least 14 times last year, so someone should be able to find it...

Not to be too picky, but she'd prefer the 1970's edition with real marbles, not the new one with plastic ones.

This one is really hard to find in my country. Apart from the game itself, it offers a wonderful material for creating new games.

I Would be grateful if you could grab it somewhere... Thanks!

This one looks like fun and has even a sort of cult following.
Since 2009, there has been rumors of a third edition but nothing sure so thrifting might be the only chance to find a copy.
It is a long shot but who knows

Kent, I would be happy to thrift some French game for you if you want.

Your initiative is very cool indeed ! You make bgg an (even) better place

Since "Raid on st. Nazaire" is already on this list, I go for this one.
I really want both of them, but they're nearly impossible to find in the regions where I live.

You'd make a eurogamer happy with a wargame!

Willing to pay for the game and shipping, good luck.

edit: typo (sort of)

FULFILLED!!! I ran across this last week at a large consignment sale. Woohoo!!

This is one of the first boardgames (beyond Chutes and Ladders and Candyland) that I ever played. My brother and I loved this game, and so I have many fond memories of it. I would love to get my hands on a copy!

Also, thanks so much for doing this. It's made me want to try and do some thrifting myself. Hopefully I can find some items to help out the others on this list.

This thread made me take the plunge and actually create an account. I'm absolutely rubbish at thrifting games, and bow myself before your prowess and your generosity, Kent.

I'm fairly certain my request conforms with the rules of the thread, but please inform me if I inadvertently haven't been.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to jump feet-first into the rest of the site. *scampers away to do so*

I found the wood box version at DAV today. It isn't the wood piece version, but i'm going to play this for a while and possibly get a 'rook' version from the UK in the future.


I would ask that you put this on your list after the success you had with the first request.
I am asking for the edition with WOOD pieces, either vintage or reissue.

Release the hounds!

This game looks really cool! I'm a college student, so my budget is a little tight (I spent all my spending money on TI3 - also a good game, but gets to the table less often). That said, if I could find this for somewhere even in the $30 region with shipping (hint anyone who has this game). I'd love it.

Thank you very much!
